Genesis absolute best. Still no favourite band of mine. In between Rush/Marillion/Pink Flyd and Beatles. A bit to "fancy".

It's a solid album with some outstanging songs, but it gets a bit tiring to listen to it in one listen. 7.6/10.

From Simon_bramhall 06/27/2018 02:26
This album didn’t take with me for many years. I was the Selling England By The Pound is a much better album, Genesis has done better person. My college roommates and others were strong supporters of this album and yet I resisted, didn’t own it for years. In hindsight I have no idea why, it has so much to offer - concept album, Hipgnosis artwork, Brian Eno, the original Genesis line-up, etc. all check boxes checked. Over time it has become one of my all time favorite albums, it has surpassed the rest of the Genesis catalogue, they never did anything better before or after. A true masterpiece that I believe many artists strive to achieve. I believe it will stand the test of time which is the real litmus test, just as the Beatles, Pink Floyd, etc. have albums that keep catching on with new generations and continue to be relevant this album is one of them as can be judged by its ranking and popularity on this site. If you don’t own this album you need to, a one of a kind genuine piece of art that has few imitators or comparisons.

Posh English Charterhouse boys compose sprawling surrealist prog opera which will later inspire Ian Dury to write the lyric "there ain't half been some clever bastards".

I have recently picked up an excellent copy of the vinyl double album. Although I have had it on CD for a couple of years I am hearing things I hadn't before. This is a very complex album which will need multiple listens for me to fully appreciate. It is one of those albums where the more you play it, the more you hear. The musicianship on this album is amazing.

Very enjoyable double-LP. Even though the story is kind of twisted, I suggest everyone to try to understand the deeper meaning behind it. Gabriel's storytelling at his best.

The story does not make much sense, but somehow this works. My favourite Genesis album.

My favorite album by my favorite band of all time. It is somewhat difficult to get into the story that is being told, but that makes it all the more rewarding after multiple listens.
